Research from Best Practices, LLC Delivers Blueprint for Commercial Success of New Product Planning Groups
Date:3/11/2010

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., March 11 /PRNewswire/ -- With patent expiration a looming concern across the bio-pharmaceutical industry, new product commercialization efforts have taken on increased importance. It's against this backdrop that new product planning groups across biopharma are trying to deal more effectively with the twin pressures of meeting timelines and delivering commercial insights.

A recent data-rich benchmarking study from Best Practices, LLC delivers actionable insights on the critical elements of the new product planning (NPP) function. The study, "Pharmaceutical New Product Planning: Structure and Activities to Drive Growth and Profitability," identifies the full set of activities that NPP groups perform across the development cycle as well as the structure and roles of NPP groups.

The research project illustrated that as companies move through each successive development Phase, the actual nature of assessment activities changes. For instance, many companies stated that competitive assessments and lifecycle planning made in the early stages are somewhat speculative, primarily designed to spot opportunities. Later on these activities become more specific, designed to drive forecasts.

While most companies perform competitive assessments from pre-clinical all the way through Phase 3, study participants said the activity is particularly critical in pre-clinical because:

  • It can gauge what changes will occur in the years ahead
  • It helps with understanding the disease state and where competitors' products fit in
  • It informs how well your drug will fit in the market
  • It helps frame "go, no-go" analysis so that, as data comes in, competitive assessment can drive forecasting and profitability potential
  • The research examines dozens of NPP developmental activities in terms of timing during the development process, intended outcomes and value for the organization.

In addition, the study details the strengths and weaknesses of various NPP organizational structures and how the operational characteristics of the NPP function evolve as a company matures.
